It is mid-November, which seems very hard to believe! I feel like we just had Halloween. I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is in less than 2 weeks! Time is flying!
I thought I would just stop by to do a quick goals check-in for the month.
Balance checkbook each evening- I would give myself a C. I have done this pretty regularly, but not each evening. In fact, there are many days that we don’t spend anything, so there is nothing to do. I did get this done tonight, considering we bought tires today and I needed to adjust our budget because of that.
Put $150 into savings (not including Christmas savings and vet savings)- Done! I put right around $175. Our savings will stay the same for now. I thought I would have to transfer some for the tires, but because of how our paydays fall, I won’t have to. Instead, I just won’t be able to put in the big chunk that I thought I was going to be able to at the beginning of December.
One date night/afternoon this month- Hasn’t happened, and we haven’t really talked about it. Need to get on this one!
Complete Ali Edwards “Week in the Life” Challenge – I am planning on doing this the week of Thanksgiving. It seemed like a decently interesting week compared to all of my other weeks.
Continue Couch to 5K program- I am doing awesome with this! I ran this morning, despite the cold and threat of snow!
Complete Tone Up For Turkey Challenge (focus on guns, buns, and abs)- Still rocking this one too! I haven’t missed a day!
Drink 4 cups of water a day- I am terrible about tracking this one. I drink water throughout the day, but have no idea how much I am drinking.
Limit sugar intake- I had been doing pretty well with this, until today. Today was not a good day as far as my sugar intake. I hope to get back on the bandwagon tomorrow. I try to limit myself to one treat a day (be it a coffee drink, small candy bar, etc.)
Blog 5x a week- I have not been as consistent as I would like. I try to carve out time in the evenings, but I am pretty tired.
Finish reading the book I started last month- Haven’t even looked at it.
Daily, simple journaling in my planner- I haven’t done the journaling i set out to do, but I did start a gratitude journal earlier this week. Today is day #5, and it is going well so far.
Start cleaning schedule and keep up with it- Completely forgot about this goal.
Stay on top of laundry for the month- I got all caught up on laundry last weekend. I did get 2 loads done today and hope to get 2 more done tomorrow. At that point, I will be caught up again! I would like to try and do 1 load every other day. I feel like that is manageable and will help me keep up with it.
So, there are some good things with my goals! I am actually feeling successful about many of them! It is a great feeling to actually make and stick to my goals! It rarely happens!
